THE MAYOR is a stereotype-shattering documentary that reveals the humanity of seniors living life to the fullest in a retirement community in Texas. Through the titular 88-year-old Mayor back on the dating scene, a Southern dame devoted to her deceased husband, and a hilarious firecracker of a woman with sharp wit and tongue intact, the film intimately explores the eternal struggle for love and connection. The octogenarians of THE MAYOR defy cultural expectations and demonstrate how our golden years can be as meaningful, challenging, and triumphant a time as any other. Written by Jared Scheib

A fascinating glance into the world of the elders as I've never imagined!
6 November 2011 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

The Mayor" presents, in a funny way, the life of the elders as I have never imagined- gossip, sex talks, flirting, dating, drama and hedonism. It is noticeable, throughout the movie, how the elders try to have a "one last sweet bite of of life" before it ends, thus allowing themselves be a little bit of teenagers again. The main character- Berger, illustrates this with his mischievous, arrogant and playful personality. It is interesting to see his daily adventures (that mostly surround women), asides his difficult physical condition and the deaths of other elders. "The Mayor" also makes you wonder about the challenges of a documentary movie- how the camera changes the way people act, and what they choose to present...

Highly recommended!!
